Benjamin D. Ruder D.D.S.
Small to Tall Pediatric Dentistry
Dr. Benjamin Ruder grew up in the Puget Sound region, first residing in Seattle and later Bainbridge Island. He travelled east for college and graduated from Cornell University in Ithaca, NY in 2001. Dr. Ruder spent his summers during and after college commercial salmon fishing in Kodiak, AK but ultimately returned to Seattle for four years of study at the University of Washington School of Dentistry. He graduated in 2006 and immediately pursued advanced training in pediatric dentistry at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, WI. Enduring cold winters and countless bratwurst, Dr. Ruder was excited to return to the PNW in 2008 to join a well-established pediatric dental practice in Olympia working with Drs. Greg Psaltis and Scott Rowley. Helping to further establish the practice under the new name of Small to Tall Pediatric Dentistry, Dr. Ruder is proud to see Small to Tall become a leading resource and supporter for pediatric oral health care in the Olympia area and neighboring counties.
